Kid Zone – FEAR FACTOR
What are you afraid of? (These can be silly little fears, or real big life fears.)
Ella: A few things that I’m scared of are deep ocean, being trapped with no way out, sometimes heights and having nightmares.
Mikaeel: I’m afraid of getting lost or getting into a car accident.
How do you handle it when you’re afraid, anxious or worried?
Ella: I usually just take a deep breath, splash some water on my face and find some way to distract myself, such as reading a book or going outside.
Mikaeel: I take deep breaths and try not to worry.
Who do you count on to support you at these times?
Ella: My family and friends. When I was younger, I used to get scared when my parents would go out for dinner or a movie and my sister and I stayed home alone, especially when it got dark. One time I started to cry and my sister went around the entire house and turned on every single light. Then she sat with me until I stopped crying and made sure I wasn’t scared anymore. Thanks Lily!
Mikaeel: My parents.
Do you think adults experience the same fears as children?
Ella: I think that every single person has their own fears, although adults and kids could have the same fear.
Mikaeel: I think some adults may experience some of the same fears as children.
